Creak boats for smaller women

Hi all,

I have a friend who's 5'2" female, currently in a remix 69. I'm looking for advice on good women's creak boats.

It completely depends on what type of water she wants to run and whether she prefers planning hulls or displacement hulls.

But, just to throw it out there, I'm 5'5" and about 135-140 lbs, and I paddle a nomad 8.5 (rated for paddlers 150 - 240 lbs). If she's an aggressive/strong paddler, she doesn't necessarily need a super small boat.

There is a small Karma in the classifieds above. She would be wise to snatch that up quick. The Karma is absolutely the best performing creeker/river runner. I can provide info for improving the outfitting to perfection. A little outfitting will give her a boat that provides confidence and enjoyment to upper her game.

Best wishes,

Ken

Mamba 7.6. Great boat. Good performance. Excellent outfitting. No need to mess around with Jackson's.
